Ireland beats West Indies by 9 wickets to enter the Super 12 stage. West Indies knocked out
Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie will remember their opening run stand that laid the foundation for a famous Ireland win. Two-time champion West Indies have been knocked out of the T20 World Cup and enter Ireland into the Super 12 stage. What a famous win this is.
IRE 110/1 after 12 overs: Paul Stirling hammers a brilliant half-century and this should be one of his best knocks with the veteran manufacturing a memorable innings under pressure in a must-win tie. West Indies has been butchered and Ireland has one foot in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup.
IRE 90/1 after 10 overs: Jason Holder is finally into the attack and it might be a tad late as Ireland needs 57 in 60 balls. Lorcan Tucker joins Paul Stirling and the duo is happy rotating the strike and milking the singles, knowing that they are actually not in need for any risky big shots.
IRE 78/1 after 8 overs: Balbirnie falls and West Indies will breathe a sigh of relief as Akeal Hosein strikes. It was a nothing delivery but Balbirnie cuts it straight to Mayers at backward point. But, what a fantastic knock this has been and the opening stand might have just opened Ireland’s chances of making it to the Super 12s.
IRE 64/0 after 6 overs: This is the highest PowerPlay score for Ireland in all T20 World Cups and what a fine start this has been from Balbirnie and Stirling. The openers have dismantled the West Indies attack and they look clueless at the moment with the fielders reduced to mere wax statues. The partnership is swelling and the required rate is just 5.93 with the current rate almost double at 10.42. The best part is the batsmen are hitting through the line and that shows how good the pitch is for batting. This is looking like a cake walk for the Irish.
IRE 45/0 after 4 overs: Andrew Balbirnie and Paul Stirling have raced off in chase of 147 and what a PowerPlay this has been from Ireland. It’s raining fours and sixes in Hobart and the Irish fans are up and dancing on their feet. West Indies bowlers are smoked to all parts of the ground and this is no blind hitting. Both openers have threaded through the gaps and have taken advantage of everytime the West Indies bowlers erred in length.
IRE 21/0 after 2 overs: Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie seem to have a plan as they have come out with an approach mixed with caution and aggression. A good PowerPlay will set the stage for Ireland and it's imperative that both openers don't get too excited and throw away their wickets. Balbirnie sweeps Hosein for a maximum over deep square leg and then smacks him for a boundary to get the run chase rolling.
Andrew Balbirnie and Paul Stirling are out in the middle and Ireland needs a good start to put pressure on West Indies. It will be Obed McCoy with the new ball and its wickets in cluster the order of the afternoon for West Indies to extend their stay in Australia.
WI 146/5 in 20 overs: This has been a sensational show from Ireland with Gareth Delany registering his best figures of 4-0-16-3 as West Indies post 146 for the loss of five wickets. Brandon King was exceptional with the bat with a brilliant half-century but sadly, he was the lone West Indian to shine with the willow in a must-win encounter. Odean Smith flexed his muscle with an unbeaten 12-ball 19 but credit to Ireland for restricting West Indies to a total, which they could have taken after losing the toss. Right then, Ireland requires 147 runs to enter the Super 12 stage and knockout two-time World Champions, West Indies out of this year’s World Cup. A tricky chase on the other side.
WI 112/5 after 17 overs: What a spell from Gareth Delany and West Indies is in deep trouble having lost half the side for just 112 runs on board. The Ireland spinners have pinched the ego of the big West Indian hitters by tossing the ball and luring to go for the bog shots. Unfortunately, they all have fallen into the plot and the maroon dugout is tense with coach Phil Simmons standing in the corner of the dugout ever since the match began. The spirits are high in the Irish camp.
WI 105/4 after 15 overs: West Indies are falling to spin and Nicholas Pooran is extremely disappointed with himself. Delany has been smart and he has lured Pooran to go for a big shot towards the bigger side of the boundary and the ploy worked as the left-hander slices to the fielder at deep point. Match evenly poised with five overs to go.
WI 84/3 after 12 overs: The introduction of spin once again paid dividends to Ireland as Gareth Delany strikes to remove the well-set Lewis. The batsman took on the googly only to find the fielder at deep and Ireland will be happy with the wicket. However, Brandon King is batting brilliantly, bisecting the gaps and finding the boundaries. He will be the key for West Indies.
WI 67/2 after 10 overs: At halfway stage, West Indies are in a better position after a quick couple of wickets. Brandon King is playing the role of an aggressor with Evin Lewis rotating the strike well. The partnership is 40 off 34 balls and Ireland needs to make further inroads.
WI 58/2 after 8 overs: Brandon King has taken on Curtis Campher and the bowler has conceded 28 runs in his two overs and that’s something that the Ireland skipper needs to think about. The last five overs, West Indies has scored 47 runs losing one wicket and it’s Campher who has leaked runs. The partnership is on and Ireland will look for wickets and spin will be key. WI 41/2 after 6 overs: Simi Singh strikes and he dismisses the dangerous Johnson Charles who smoked Campher for 16 runs in the previous over. The struggle against spin continues as Charles cuts it straight to Campher at backward point. The off-spinner almost pulled a blinder but failed to latch on as Brandon King gets a life. West Indies needs to be careful and not get succumbed under pressure.
WI 27/1 after 4 overs: McCarthy delivers an early blow for the West Indies as he removes Mayers for just 1 run. It was the urgency to score inside the PowerPlay and the dot balls added to the pressure as the opener plays an ambitious aerial drive only to find Tector at mid-off. However, Johnson Charles has dismantled Curtis Campher with two consecutive boundaries and then dispatched the bowler over long-on for a maximum. Evin Lewis is out in the middle.
WI 9/0 after 2 overs: Kyle Mayers and Johnson Charles eye to give West Indies a good start in a do-or-die battle in Hobart and it’s the pace of Joshua Little that has cramped the West Indies batsmen. Charles has a boundary to his name, thanks to an outside edge. An early breakthrough is what Ireland will be targetting.
Kyle Mayers and Johnson Charles are out in the middle and it will be Joshua Little with the new ball. Players have taken the knee and it’s time for some exhilirating cricket. Remember, it’s a knockout game.

Pitch Report from Carlos Brathwaite: It’s a different pitch with an 82 metre boundary straight down the ground. It’s a nice looking playing surface with a few cracks and dryness. Spinners will get some help from this pitch.
